Best Ice Cream in Saratoga

Ended up here by accident one day heading to Schuylerville from Saratoga but it was warm and the huge ice cream cone was so appealing. So I stopped the car and me and the family jumped in line for cool ice cream and drinks. The only issue I had was later when i decided on a fish platter, the wait... read more

The ice cream is all yummy custom made and they have a great of ways to serve it. They also have the usual selection of burgers, sandwiches, fried fish and chicken, as well as great Michigan hot dogs with all the sauces and trimming. If you don't like the traditional outside window line, they have a good air conditioned inside... More

First off, this is one of the coolest restaurants I have had the opportunity to eat in. Right up my family's alley! DELICIOUS food. Everything we ordered, or should I say over ordered b/c we definitely went overboard was DELICIOUS! Of course, we made room for the BEST ever homemade ice-cream. Both soft serve and hard ice cream were eaten... More

The ice cream and food is worth the trip. The day we were there was quiet and the service excellent. Will return in the future.

A great roadside stop between Saratoga Springs and Schuylerville. Fast food burgers & fries, etc and hard & soft ice cream make it a must stop on a warm summer trip in this area!

Worth the drive to get excellent ice cream. The service is great. You can enjoy it inside or outside. They also serve food here, will have to come back before the season ends!

Inventive ice-cream flavors, over-stuffed cones - what more could you ask for. The fried fish and clams were very tasty as were the homemade fries. And they don't stint on quantity. Nice tables to sit at to eat inside. Fun time. Owner was interesting to talk to and made it even more enjoyable. Thank you.

My daughter and I went recently. We each got a kid's meal which consisted of a buger, fries, and the smallest soda I've ever seen. The burger was good, however we asked that it be plain and there be no pickles and when it came, the pickle juice had soaked up the bun. I "upgraded" to real french fries and... More

Its definitely worth the trip to get some ice cream (soft serve and regular) from Farmers Daughter. We were up from NYC dropping off a friend at the racetrack and we stopped off at Farmers Daughter after touring Gen. Schuyler's home. WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID. It was a hot day and the soft orange cream and black raspberry... More
